What we're about

Hello reader!

This is a women's book club spanning all themes and genres. We meet one Sunday a month and chat over delicious food from a local restaurant. The vibe is laid back and freeform, but be warned: WE WILL discuss the book :) (rumor has it that's not a guarantee at every book club meeting...). Women of all ages are welcome, and every event is usually a mix of new and familiar faces. After each discussion, we decide as a group on the next read, so bring your recommendations -- we'd love to read what you'd love to read!

Past reads include Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Hidden Valley Road, Project Hail Mary, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and Ali Wong's Dear Girls.

If you're interested in joining, all I ask is that you finish the book in time for meetings (or come prepared to hear spoilers), be respectful in discussions, and keep your RSVPs UP-TO-DATE so that anyone who wants to join can join.

I'm excited to meet you and discuss a new book!

The House in the Cerulean Sea

Needs a location

As usual, time and location TBD. I may look into some new places for us to meet at ... or may not. I am a woman of great mystery... buuuut expect a definitive time and location in the next week or two :)

This month, we're reading The House on the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune!

This one's another widely acclaimed pick. The accolades include A NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY, and WASHINGTON POST BESTSELLER; a 2021 Alex Award winner; one of Publishers Weekly's "Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2020"; and one of Book Riot’s “20 Must-Read Feel-Good Fantasies” (yes, you read that right - FEEL-GOOD!). The publisher blurb says: "The House in the Cerulean Sea is an enchanting love story, masterfully told, about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place—and realizing that family is yours." Author TJ Klune has written several books and has been praised for his skill at fantasy writing and queer storytelling.

And of course, a few of our book club members have already read it and recommended it, so that's extra impetus to prepare for next month's book discussion where we'll either spend all of brunch gushing about this wonderful read... or have a delightfully heated debate ;)
